17 Teachers, 2 Assistant Principals, and 1 Principal NEW FRIENDS. At Cline ' s Thouly Kastanaki, this year ' s foreign exchange student from Greece, chats over a coke with another new student, freshman Cathy Riederer. Although Mr. Thurston was our most important change, the freshmen were the largest and most unfamiliar portion of new- ness. Making tlie big transition from junior high to high school, they found taking notes and keeping assignment books something uew in their education. Suddenly they seriously thought of futures ranging from college to war in Viet Nam. They joined many new activities and were especially predominant in the new cheerblock. Those of us who lived within a mile of school could no longer drive to school. Our friends who were not restricted registered their cars with new assistant principal Mr. Eugene Dykstra. Also aiding Mr. Tliurston was new assistant principal Mr. Thomas Rice. Among the ]7 new teachers, Mrs. Mary Jane Kass and Mr. Thomas Amos told us of their travels in France and Ethiopia. Mrs. Kass toured France last summer with a group of her stu- dents. Mr. Amos recently served two years with the Peace Corps. Wishing to help him bring three Ethiopian boys to our high school next year, we contributed some of the money for their trip. We were not too busy bustling through the halls to notice other new faces. New to our student body was Thouly Kastanaki, our foreign exchange student from Greece. In honor of Thouly the Student Council flew the Greek flag. Certainly important to sports fans was the growing interest in basketball which can be credited to Mr. Marvin Wood, our new coach, and the determination of his boys. A VISITOR. Student teacher Mr. Joseph Fross from Indiana University uses a Mi-Hi Guide to direct freshmen to their next class.

Mr. Tom Amos, former Peace Corps member, wears Ethiopian garb. In our year of change we remembered the sanding demonstra- tion that revealed the time and effort needed to sand desks and promised to keep books and desks free from doodling. We liked getting books in class and even more the way we could breeze through the cafeteria for book supplies the second semester. This was the year we knew what was expected of us. With a new re- spect for authority, we observed rules which we had previously ignored such as " no gum chewing " and " no running in the halls. " We dressed in conservative styles, girls remembering go-go boots wjre no go, and boys that blue jeans were out. Inspiring the faculty with colorful slides showing good ex- amples, Mr. Thurston encouraged teachers to redecorate dreary Ijulletin boards inside the classrooms. In a bright, clean atmos- phere and with a new desire for learning, we tackled math prob- lems and English compositions. With more emphasis on good discipline and no cheating, most of us resolved to study harder and better. With better methods and more equipment studies be- came more enjoyable. Biology and sewing students worked in a pleasing atmosphere of the newly equipped labs while language students tried the new big-ear headphones in the language labs. Although we considered ourselves unjustly hindered by new rules and regulations and complained because we liked to complain, we realized their full significance toward the overall transforma- tion of our school and were proud of the results.
